    I am always in the top 3rd no matter how big the tournament. I win sometimes, but i play low fee games, obviously i know thats not how to get it to 1,000, but i know for a fact theres people making a living of this, I salute you, and kindly and steadfast, to give this fellow travel some advise to have a great Christmas for my family. I haven’t even paid FanDuel for 2 years, but cause i play safe and small just so i could keep playing.
    Sorry if this something forbidden, have a good Sunday 30.00 best way h2h ?

    1. Play as much free rolls as you can get and hopefully take one down.

    2. If not then temper expectation and play single entry contest at $1 or $2 level and hope you win one of them.

    There is no magic pill, it is a long term grind. Otherwise we will all be trying it for a month like you want to do.

  • tonedefrob

    If you’re intent on using DFS to turn it into 1k in a month, enter a $100 single entry tournament with a lower amount of entries. Play it similar to a cash game and hope variance doesn’t strike.

    Spend $10 driving to the bank and withdraw $1,000.

    Or, go to the your local casino and play black/red.

    Or, enter an oversized GPP with incredible rake and hope you finish in the top 1% (if not better). Super simple

    It’s so hard to say. Are you a single entry guy? 2 entries into the quarter arcade? 20 lineups max into a small $1 game?

    If it is really true that you are “always in the top 3rd”, you might have a good process, but the rules you apply to your roster construction are just a bit off. Or, you are eating so much chalk and following the heard that there is the appearance of decency when in fact you are a long ways off from rosters that appropriately flirt with the disaster and high paying ends of the bell curve.

    Take a $10 bill, add two zeroes to it and hope that the bank teller is the dumbest person in the world. Because if that is your DFS goal, it will be gone very quickly.

    give this fellow travel some advise to have a great Christmas for my family.

    So, here’s what’s up, an honest answer for you.

    It’s too late. Can it be done? Yes, but it takes much longer than just a month to accomplish. More like 6.
    The problem is with only $10 and practicing proper bankroll management you won’t be able to play enough to get near $1k without putting yourself in a position to go bust-o, or, no longer “play safe and small just so i could keep playing”. If you want to make 1 into 1000 in one month you’re going to need to stop playing safe and put yourself in a position to either no longer be playing or have to pay/deposit into a site.

    I’m not in the business of instantly believing something someone wrote, but if what you are saying is true, bro, you are a successful DFS player. If you can/have played for awhile without depositing you are INFINITELY more successful at this than 60% of people who play, and 90% of people on here. Including me.

    Like, that may be hard to wrap heads around but the fact is you need to re-adjust what your expectations from DFS are. If you are looking to go ham in a month to buy some ham, you will lose. Without getting obscenely lucky, lottery ticket style, your bankroll will run out trying to chase a completely unobtainable goal within one month.

    Is your goal obtainable? Yes, absolutely, but it takes work, commitment, restraint, and most importantly time. Like I said, if what you are saying is true you’ve already got the commitment and restraint part down, and frankly those are beyond the most complicated part to master. So legit, you are already there, you just need to up your bankroll size and keep doing exactly what you are doing. That’s the key right now; don’t change what you are doing, just invest more of your personal finances to get further.

    I CAN’T STRESS THIS ENOUGH. IF YOU HAVE BEEN PLAYING ANY LENGTH OF TIME AND HAVEN’T RE-DEPOSITED, YOU ARE A SUCCESSFUL DFS PLAYER. THERE IS NOTHING MORE TO ACCOMPLISH.

    YOU. HAVE. WON.

    If in fact you are consistently finishing top 3 in mirco’s than there’s literally nothing to suggest you can’t do that at low-buy ins. Should you instantly start playing $10 dbl ups with your roll? Absolutely not. You have to make a decision.

    You need to do one of two things:

    One, drive to the bank, get $100 into you site account, not $10. Then start doing the exact same thing you are doing except $1 instead of .10/.25, or $3/4/5 instead of $1. If you are serious about making more money and you are successful as you have stated than this is something you should seriously consider, because even finishing consistently high, let alone that high is completely wasted in micro’s. If in fact what you said is true this is the most optimal way to get to $1k, and it can probably be done in a month. Don’t overstep your boundaries of skill and bankroll size. Don’t blow your roll in one night and don’t play people you shouldn’t even consider competing against (bigger buy-in skilled players).

    Two, you need to reconsider and reevaluate what you believe is possible from DFS. It’s like someone who is sick at bball but only plays in their church league, and then complains that they want to be a pro by the new year. Like, if you want to be a pro and you have the foundation to be one (which, like I have been saying, if what you’re saying is true you have the foundation) then be one. Take the friggin’ steps from the first suggestion, or move on from DFS and stop complaining. It’s really that simple.

    So, either keep doing exactly what you are doing, but actually invest some money into this instead of being a micro buy-in player, or, move on/adapt what your expectations are.

    And, to actually answer your question.
    Play 20% of your roll a night into different slates/sports. Play 70/30 or 80/20 Cash/GPP ratio. If you aren’t a cash player (which you should be) than feel free to go as far as 60/40 Cash/GPP, and if you are successful as you stated then within no time you’ll have a process that should fund your holidays for years to come.
    Like I said the important thing is not re-depositing. If you accomplish this you are a winner. If you are a winner take steps to win more because you’re wasting your time down below.

    Best of luck, hope this helps.

    If this is true, congrats, you found a free money machine. I recommend maxing out your mortgage, getting as many credit cards as you can, personal loans, etc., really just whatever you can get. Try your local loan shark too, payday loans, just max out your credit. Then go into the lobby and enter as many triple-ups or double-ups as you can. Don’t forget to withdraw some of your winnings to pay back your loans. I recommend paying off the loan sharks first, those guys can get physical.

    This is actually how Condia got started, listened to a super depressing interview where he said he maxed out credit cards and basically played with all of it with the idea that he’d just commit suicide if it didn’t work.

    Glad he’s in a much better place these days

    Sounds like a solid back up plan

    I thought it was one of the best interviews I have heard from a top DFS player. Condia was thoughtful, honest and mature in his outlook. In essence he was renouncing materialism and money, more focused now on personal inner growth as a human being.

    Why do we play DFS ? For money of course. How much money do we need ? Do people even ask that. After we made the money in DFS then what ? Do we stay greedy for more and more ? Is contentment measured in money and materials ? People should listen to that hour long interview with Condia and then reflect for a bit. It is not about ranks, money, material, bragging screenshots etc…

    It is about growing as human being then maturing to find inner contentment away from money, material and competition. Condia journey just happened to be in DFS and has lessons for all of us. Super depressing I beg to differ, thought it was candid all-around and illuminating.

  • Morley

    Actually I believe it was you who pointed me to that interview in the first place.

    It was a fantastic interview, just the holy shit his brm was a suicide stop loss was pretty mind blowing. Never understood how anything could ever get like that for anyone and that aspect of it was depressing.

    Otherwise, a great interview. The interview of Hoop2410 was pretty awful and Hoop even lied about his methodology a few times. Look, if he doesn’t want to share his system that’s perfectly understandable but don’t actively try to mislead the audience.

    Source: I quite often have identical lineups as him and get my lineups from my own data model. There’s no way he coincidentally gets to exact same lineup through feel, we’re using very very similar models and he goes on and on to emphasize how what he does is through feel.

    Anybody have the link to that interview? I remember seeing it when it came out but would love to give it a listen again.
